Designed on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australian brand DOOG (Dog Owners Outdoor Gear) is having huge success with its range of dog walking gear to encourage people to walk, run and get fit with their pets.
With the popularity of pet fitness growing in the USA, DOOG have recently opened an office in Dallas, Texas and launched an online store in the USA.
“We have owned dogs all our lives and have always incorporated them into our exercise routines,” DOOG co-owner Jessica Knight said. “We saw a gap in the market to create exercise gear for dog owners to help make their walk, run and exercise with their dogs more enjoyable.”
The DOOG range includes dog walking utility belts for fast paced power walks and a dog running belt for dog owners, which comes with the all-important pick up bags as well as a compartment to pull through your headphones so owners can listen to tunes while running with their dog. There’s even a water bottle and bowl that hygienically allows the dog and owner to share water while they exercise. DOOG’s range of collars and leads are made from lightweight wetsuit material, making them a really comfortable option for your pet to wear when exercising.
“’With the rate of pet obesity rising in the U.S. each year, there is no better way to keep your dog in shape than incorporating a fast paced daily walk or run with your dog into your everyday routine,” Knight said. “Just put on a DOOG walking or running belt, grab some headphones, put on a pair of sneakers and hit the pavement, parks and trails. Your dog will reap the health benefits, as will you.”
DOOG Products are available through the U.S. store, www.doogusa.com, and selected pet store retailers.
